  4. If you have found the name you're looking for, but are HAVING TROUBLE tracing it backwards among the maelstrom of names, contact me . Send me as much info as you've got, I'll do a computer search and return the results by e-mail.
    • A properly conducted computer search may be able to discover maiden names, parents, siblings, cousins, second marriages, age of death, strays from other parishes, locate Memorial inscriptions and suggest names which are only partly readable in the registers.
    • My computer is specially set up with 9 different indexes, which allow quick and complex searches to build up the Family Tree, as far as the data permits.
    • The computer search is FREE. In return, please be patient if you don't get an immediate answer, sometimes I have a backlog of e-mails to answer and sometimes I go on holiday.
    • PLEASE REMEMBER the search only covers GLAPTHORN Census 1841-1891. I don't have any computerised records outside this place and dates.

  5. Here's a list of FUNNYS that have been brought to my attention by Users of this Web site. Usually I try to put them right immediately, but sometimes there's nothing I can do but add them to this page and hope that people read it.

  6. If you still HAVEN'T FOUND the name you're looking for, then its almost certainly not in the Glapthorn Census 1841-1891. I'm sorry to say that my computerised database won't be of much help to you. However there are other sources, and I'll jot them down on a separate page when I think of them. All suggestions welcome!
